ROLE: I wrote and directed this short docu-fiction. It is my first work as a director.
Two black Americans are asked to share their views on Africa by seeing 360 ° images filmed in Tanzania, as they are juries for a festival.
It is the cultural irony that black Americans are primarily descendants of Africa that leads them to be chosen for this role.
All this confusion will lead to a long debate full of authenticity and humor through a visually African but vocally American journey.
